A mother is left distressed after her daughter left home for school and has not returned home since October 3. The mother, Marilyn Brown, is pleading for her 14-year-old to return home, as she believes that her child might have run away.
The St. Catherine mother, who is a bartender, shared that when she returned home last Tuesday, she learned from relatives that since her daughter left for school at 6:30 a.m., she had not come home. In disbelief, Brown sought to check the house herself and discovered the harsh reality.
“I look in the house and me say ‘A joke unnu a run or sumn’ and her bag wasn’t there, her shoes wasn’t there, her phone wasn’t there,” Brown said. “It’s the first time she’s left home,” Brown told the Jamaica Star.
The teen, who is regarded as jovial and hardworking, is a ninth-grader at Spanish Town High School. She has a medium frame, a dark complexion, and is around 5 feet 3 inches tall. Her last known outfit included her uniform, a maroon tunic, a gold shirt, and a pair of black shoes.
Sashoy allegedly informed Brown that she was unaware of her location when she was contacted. Brown, a mother of four, shared that her daughter was “doing her own thing right now.”
The mother stated that on Wednesday, she learned through one of her daughter’s classmates that her daughter had plans to meet someone in May Pen. The teen was reportedly planning to meet the person and then try to go home by 3 p.m.
Brown, who is ill, said she needed her daughter to come home so they can talk about anything bothering her. Brown sought the assistance of the Child Protection and Family Services Agency two years ago so that her daughter could get counselling.
Anyone with information on Sashoy Brooks’ whereabouts is urged to call the Spanish Town police at 876-984-2305, the 119 police emergency line, or the closest police station.
